Please Let Us Never Forget This Lady!

10 Oct

Do You Remember this lady?

We need to be reminded……. As General Eisenhower said at the time, “We want plenty of photos so no one can ever say this did not happen”.

Remember this lady?


Irena Sendler

Died: May 12, 2008 (aged 98)

Warsaw, Poland

During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist.

She had an ulterior motive.

Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried.

She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids.

Irena kept a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto.

The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog, and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.


During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.

Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazi’s broke both of her legs and arms and beat her severely.

Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out,

In a glass jar that she buried under a tree in her back yard.

After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and tried to reunite the family.

Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.

In 2007, Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize, but she was not selected.

Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.

Later, another politician, Barack Obama, won for his work as a community organizer for ACORN.


It is now more than 65 years since the Second World War in Europe ended.

In memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated!

Now, Iran , and others, claim the HOLOCAUST to be ‘a myth.’ It’s imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because there are others who would like to do it again.

    Thank you so much for sharing this. I did not know about this woman. How brave and beautiful.

      It really amazes me how brave she was but also how incredibly loving, brave and painful for the mothers to hand over their babies to the terrifying unknown. Such a horrific period in time!
